Wok Box Fresh Asian Kitchen, a Canadian-based fast-casual chain that offers fast and fresh cuisine from 10 Asian countries, said Tuesday that it will open its first franchise in South Florida as part of an agreement to open 44 locations throughout Florida in the next six years.

Local businessmen Paul Scholtes and Dan Ackerman will open the first location at Royal Palm Plaza in Coral Springs by the end of the summer. Additional sites will follow quickly in Aventura and Coral Gables, the company said.

Since entering the U.S. marketplace in 2011, Wok Box has opened five restaurants throughout Arizona, Texas and Oregon.

Wok Box said it specializes in fresh, wok-cooked Asian cuisine, offering simple but extensive menu options influenced by the flavors of 10 Asian regions, including Thailand, Malaysia, Mongolia, Singapore, Korea, China, Japan, India, Cambodia and Vietnam.
